For home and business owners, owning a fence benefits them in a multitude of ways. Owning a fence ameliorates safety measures, keeps others from trespassing, defines a yard and even promotes friendlier relations with neighbors.
However, with all of these perks comes great responsibility. There’s a code of etiquette that new and old fence owners need to follow in order to maintain better relations.
Nix the Ugly:
If you want to maintain friendly relations with your neighbor and nonverbally communicate to them, that you think they are swell than please don’t give them the ugly side of of your fence. Remember that the rail side should face inward.
Neighbor Consultation and Communication:
If you build a fence, then you must let your neighbor know ahead of time.Always let them know, ahead of time what kind of fence you are interested in getting. You never know, they may offer to help you pay or maintain the fence.
To avoid confusion with your neighbor: it’s good to pull up your deed to pinpoint property lines, open up communication about the fence’s style, and if your neighbor is interested in sharing a fence with you, just draw up legal documents as a measure to prevent any setbacks in the future.
Fences serve specific purposes while still adding to the overall ornate value of your home or business. They also carry with them burgeoning responsibility and etiquette that must be followed accordingly. If you have any questions, contact Hercules Fence by calling (800) TU FENCE or click here today!
